Halifax, NS---EnPoint, a female founded and owned tech startup, joined the newly created Virtual Residency at Volta. The innovation hub has developed a branch of its Residency program exclusively for companies who do not need physical space, but could benefit from the collaborative community of peers, mentors, and advisors. Technology based startups, with Founders who are full-time and based in Atlantic Canada, must be willing to be active, collaborative participants with Volta events and programming, and share best practices with other community members. On the heel of their third year, EnPoint, an entirely bootstrapped startup, is poised to scale with the support of other tech founders and advisors.
"EnPoint is founded on the unshakable belief that relationships matter and that the right relationships at the right time in career and business can be changing. As a young company with a big vision of supporting 1 million people in building meaningful careers through mentorship - leveraging the network, expertise, learning, and community of Volta is a no brainer", Chantal Brine, CEO, EnPoint.
This news comes in the wake of many recent initiatives and accomplishments of the company, which include:
En Point CEO Chantal Brine is nominated for the 2022 Woman of Inspiration™ Awards
En Point CEO Chantal Brine is nominated for the 30th Annual RBC Canadian Women Entrepreneur Awards, Presented by Women of Influence.
The Virtual Residency program will run and operate similarly to Volta’s In-House Resident program; with specific eligibility requirements including: companies having a validated idea, global market potential, a team of full-time Founders, and at least one Founder based in Atlantic Canada – among other requirements.
“The decision to add Virtual Residency as an option for Founders came after successfully delivering virtual programming to our Residents in the midst of the pandemic,” said Volta’s Chief Innovation Officer, Matt Cooper. “Founders and their teams have needed to adapt to the challenges and new realities that COVID-19 has presented for work environments. It’s critical that Volta adapts as well to remain relevant and valuable to the Atlantic Canadian startups that we serve.”
